Xiaomi Redmi Note 2 is definitely one of the most leaked devices this year. Xiaomi has announced a number of smartphones thus far in 2015, but the Redmi Note 2 is definitely the most leaked one, probably because its predecessor arrived in March 2014, so the 2nd-gen model is kind of late at this point. Anyhow, we’ve seen a number of leaked images of this device, and same can be said about spec sheets and what not. Well, the device has leaked yet again in China, and this time around we actually get to see quite a few details when it comes to this phone, read on.
The new leak revealed the phone’s design, specs and pricing. If you take a look at the gallery down below you’ll notice a number of hands-on images, along with the specs of this handset. According to this info, the Redmi Note 2 will sport a 5.5-inch 1080p (1920 x 1080) display along with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. MediaTek’s Helio X10 (MT6795) 64-bit octa-core SoC will fuel this device, and Android 5.0.2 Lollipop will come pre-installed on it, while Xiaomi’s MIUI will be installed on top of Google’s OS. The 13-megapixel snapper will be available on the back of the Redmi Note 2, and a 5-megapixel snapper will be located up front.
According to this leak, the Redmi Note 2 will cost the equivalent to $156, which is not a bad price tag at all. It is also worth mentioning that the Redmi Note 2 listing popped up on Oppomart yesterday, and the specs are very similar to this new leak, aside from the SoC. Oppomart’s listing claims the Redmi Note 2 will be fueled by the Snapdragon 615 64-bit octa-core SoC, and not the Helio X10. Well, it is possible that Xiaomi intends to release both those version, we’ve already seen a number of rumors saying that they intend to do just that.
There you have it, this is quite probably the Redmi Note 2 we’ve been waiting for, but we still don’t know when will Xiaomi announce it. It is possible that the company might showcase this handset alongside MIUI 7 tomorrow, but that’s not as likely, Either way, we’ll report back soon, stay tuned.
